Santorini is the most cosmopolitan and picturesque island in Greece, located in the heart of the Aegean Sea, at the southern part of Cycladic Islands.
An alternative name for Santorini is Thira. Santorini is also a name for the family of islands surrounding Thira–once forming a single island prior to a major volcanic event in approximately 1500 B.C.E.
The Island of Santorini was formed in a massive volcanic eruption, giving way to some stunning scenery. The black sand and peddle beaches along its east coast have beautifully clear water and are great for water sports and swimming – although they shelve quite steeply, so not ideal for children. The Western coast has dramatically towering cliffs which plunge into the sea.
